Chelsea legend John Terry sends message to Kurt Zouma over Tottenham transfer
Kurt Zouma had a fairly mixed 2020/21 campaign. It began with the Frenchman a key figure under Frank Lampard.
However, when Thomas Tuchel took the reins in late January, Zouma began to see his game time reduced.
The Frenchman did not feature in Tuchel’s first five league games as Chelsea manager, and would go on to complete 90 minutes just seven times in the PL under his new boss.
Following his limited action under Tuchel, reports began to emerge in early July suggesting Zouma was expected to leave Chelsea this summer:
Info @telefoot_TF1 Kurt Zouma devrait quitter Chelsea cet été.
En Angleterre, Wolverhampton s’est positionné mais le joueur a décliné.
Everton et Tottenham sont intéressés, tout comme la Roma. José Mourinho aimerait obtenir le prêt (avec OA) du défenseur. #Mercato

Zouma linked with Chelsea exit
Later in the month, we would see West Ham United linked with the stopper by Sky Sports News.
No move has since been forthcoming, of course, with reports now emerging this week that another London-based club are interest in Zouma.
These reports once again come from Sky, who credited Tottenham with an interest in the Chelsea man:
Tottenham are interested in signing Kurt Zouma from Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Terry’s message to Zouma
Since the Zouma-Tottenham links emerged, one man has certainly made his feelings known on the subject.
That man is Chelsea legend and former centre-back, John Terry.
Sky Sports News would post about Spurs’ interest in Zouma on their official Instagram page.
This would prompt Terry to comment on the post, tagging Zouma’s official account and writing ‘Don’t do it’, followed by an eye emoji and a blue heart.
The comment can be seen below or by clicking on the Instagram post and looking at the top comment:
